Last Tuesday (16), through social networks, Jumbo-Visma confirmed that Christopher Laporte will be in the team again until 2026. The new contract is one of the team’s perspectives to guarantee new victories later this year.
“I feel great here, this team works in an extremely professional way, but at the same time it feels very familiar. From the first day I arrived here, there was a lot of confidence in the team”, said the cyclist.
Merijn Zeeman, sporting director of Jumbo-Visma, said the athlete is of utmost importance to the team: “His arrival proved to be a success and, in a year and a half, he gained leader status. There was a lot of competition from other teams to sign him. him and he decided to stay longer because of who we are and how we work. I take that as a huge compliment”.
